My radio history started as a Novice in 1959. Upgrading and moving led to ten different callsigns over the years including NA8M, K8HJ, AA8FP, KD8QL, WB8CIY, WA8EIY, WA2VBF, K3IVT, KN9QMQ. I received my Technician license in 1961,Advanced license in 1968 and Amateur Extra license in 1992.

My interests include CW and DX (337 countries / 329towards Honor Roll). I am net control on Wednesdays for the Seagull Net (3.940mHz) and Pine Tree Net (3.596mHz), the Maine state-wide SSB and CW traffic nets.

After 35 years as a school administrator in Michigan, I retired in July of 2001. In April of 2005 we moved to Waterford, Maine and renovated an 1860's farmhouse and barn. My shack is in the family room in a roll-top desk. If I roll down the top, the radio equipment disappers.

The main rigs are a Ten Tec Orion and a K3. I use LP-Pan panadapters for each. The tuner is an HF-AUTO by Palstar. The amp is a Ten Tec Hercules II solid state for 500 watts.
 
 
I have two antennas, a center fed 130 foot doublet up 80 feet and a 32 foot doublet up 80 feet at the top end. Both are fed with home brew open wire line. Here's the 130' doublet.
 
It's hard to see the doublet.
 
The open wire feeder comes into the shack. You can also see my ground strap.
 
Once in the shack, the feeders go to knife switches for quick disconnect.
 
Then to baluns behind the desk and to the tuner.
 
I use a lot of software - DXLab Suite for logging and spotting, N4PY for rig control, and NaP3 for the panadapter.
 
My Paddle collection includes a Vizkey 90 Degree single lever, a Kent single lever, K8RA P-2, Bencher, Vibroplex Brass Racer, and a Brown Brothers BTL-A. On the desk are a MagPad and a March Magnetic.
